Casing ID

Article about: I tried to clean it, but... ;-/ I will try vinegar solution... ;-)

    It looks like a 7.62x39 grenade blank , the crimp has blown out and extended the length.....

    If the length can be extended from that sort of round I would be inclined to agree with you. Thats a huge bottle neck casing.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Default Cassing ID...

    So...blank WWII...

    Anyway...Thanks all of u...

    Tomorrow, I think...I will take out this casing from vinegar solution..., so...let's see the 'mighty' headstamp...!

    Here is a piece of shrapnel cleaned in that solution...

    I found many pieces of shrapnel in the same zone...several of them have the same 'stamp pattern' (on the flat side...)...any idea about this ?

    Thank you .
